Genre/Influences: Dark-Electro, Industrial.
Background/Info: This is an EP featuring four songs by UK project Silent Weapon.
Content: This project brings us a heavy, dynamic, harsh and Industrial/Electro driven composition driven by broken beats and harsh vocals on top. The work features 3 original songs plus 1 cover version of Voivod.
+ + + : The original songs of the EP took me by surprise; Silent Weapon is an interesting project for its sonic fusion between Industrial, Dark-Electro and even elements like D’n’B (for the rhythm) and EBM (for some bass lines). The opening song is a blast while I also recommend the title song.
– – – : The cover version of Voivod might be meaningful for the band but doesn’t bring any bonus to this EP.
Conclusion: Silent Weapon isn’t taking the work by surprise but this EP is however an interesting work for dark, progressive souls.
Best songs: “Menticide”, “The Fear Of The Possibility Of Chaos”.

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.
Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.
If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
